|Great Britain Maps for Smartphones and
released its Opendata product in 2010 it was a great advance but still
lacking in quality compared to Landranger and Explorer products. I have
merged this data with OS contour data and footpath data from Open
Street Map together with Rights of Way data from most Local Authorities
in England and Wales (the law is different in Scotland) to make a
product specifically designed for loading into
Smartphone applications. The digital map is copied to the device and
used offline with no data charges. There is no limit to the number of
devices on which you can use it. You are also free to print or
publish from this mapping with the requirement that you include the
messages at the base of this page and that this requirement be also
passed on. These maps are very good value
: Landranger maps are, typically, four times the price from a
company such as Memory-map.
The mapping covers the whole of Great Britain - Northern Ireland is not covered by the Ordnance Survey. It is broken down into seven overlapping sections to keep each file less than 2GB. The files can be immediately used with Back Country Navigator app on Android. Simply download and copy to the bcnav\atlases folder. MAPC2MAPC will allow you to view these maps (Utilities>View SQLITEDB map) and load, draw, edit and save GPX Tracks and Routes on a Windows PC
These maps are available for sale only to the UK and to countries outside the EU.
With these maps and applications you will (except in deep woods and gorges) be able to see where you are, where you have been and plot where you are going.
Read here why hiker, bikers, geocachers and others should consider a Smartphone instead of a GPS unit.

Available for immediate download for £6 per section or £25 for the whole of Great Britain. These files are large - 9GB in total - so they can also be supplied on a re-usable 16GB USB memory stick for £35. The USB stick can be shipped to UK only; please allow up to 14 days for post. Returns are only accepted if the USB seal is unbroken.
(On the real smartphone the image is sharp!)
